My family and I join our fellow Filipinos in grieving for the death of former President Cory Aquino. We join the whole nation in mourning the death of a world icon of peace and democracy.
Our nation has lost a great leader and a mother. The Filipino people will forever be grateful for her heroic sacrifice of offering her leadership as a uniting beacon light during the dark days of the dictatorship. Her life and virtues shall always be an inspiration and source of strength to the Filipino people as we face the challenges and struggles as a freedom loving nation.
Bilang isang brodkaster, lubos ang aking pasasalamat sa kanya sa pagbalik ng demokrasya sa bansa. Utang na loob po namin sa kanya ang malayang pamamahayag na tinatamasa natin ngayon. Sa ipinamalas niyang tapang sa pamumuno, binuhay niya ang loob ng mga mamamahayag na ipaglaban ang karapatan at kalayaan ng bawat Pilipino.
Let us console ourselves by the thought that she has now returned to Our Great Creator.
